Orzo and Bulgur Salad


The Lebanese Recipes Kitchen (The home of delicious Lebanese Recipes and Middle Eastern food recipes) invites you to try Orzo and Bulgur Salad Recipe. Enjoy the Middle Eastern Cuisine and learn how to make Orzo and Bulgur Salad.

Bulgur is a cereal food made from several different types of wheat, and it has a light, nutty flavor. It is a common ingredient in many Turkish and Middle Eastern dishes. In this recipe, bulgur is combined with chopped vegetables, pasta, and dried cranberries to create a healthy and hearty salad. Serve chilled and topped with green onions and feta cheese.

Ingredients

1 cup bulgur
1 cup orzo
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup chopped, seeded cucumber
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup coarsely snipped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Directions

1. Place bulgur in a 2-cup glass measure; set aside. Cook orzo according to package directions. Drain orzo, reserving cooking water. Pour enough of the hot cooking water into the glass measure with the bulgur to equal 2 cups. Let bulgur stand for 45 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed.

2. In a large bowl combine cooked orzo, celery, carrot, cucumber, and cranberries. Add the bulgur; set aside. In a medium bowl whisk together olive oil, vinegar, parsley, shallot, sugar, salt, mustard, fennel seeds, and pepper. Add to bulgur mixture; toss well to combine. Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours. Stir before serving. Top with green onions and feta cheese. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
